Bug description:
  Feature Freeze Justification
  This release fixes to two CVE's and most notably has removed its custom AES 
crypto implementation with using openssl libraries. It is for the security 
reasons I am requesting this FFe this late in the cycle.

  Other Changes:
  - A bunch of bug fixes
  - A number of new features like bzip2 (this optional and could be disabled 
for 18.04), improved AES encryption support, some of the new features are other 
platforms only
  - Breaks API (only 1 symbol was removed though), soname bump, so will require 
a mini transition, all the 23-odd reverse-depends that I count are in universe. 
  - they appear to have dropped their custom AES implementation in favour of 
using openssl (this should be a plus!)
  - Build system switched to Cmake in latest release

  It has a fairly comprehensive test suite, but I did have to disable for now, 
a few problematic tests that fail in the launchpad buildd chroots, but not 
elsewhere like local machine or Debian schroot.

  I have run a test rebuild for all the rdepends in ppa:darkxst/libzip.
  All built successfully, except for 2 packages, cbmc and plume-creater
  that had unrelated fallout due to gcc7 and other packaging changes.

  Other Notes: 
  - There are a bunch of presumably private symbols leaked into the debian 
symbols file. Not ideal, but probably not the only package in the archive like 
  - I will follow up with upstream issues for the RPATH stuff, tests and 
symbols later
  - I will also push for the update into Debian
